Nice for a while, but I would NOT recommend buying this now.
24 August 2012
Summary: When it worked, it was pretty nice, but the Wi-Fi totally stopped working right after warranty was up. Without wi-fi this thing loses most of it's charm. Add the fact that there's no guarantee how long the recently bankrupt Kodak will keep the pulse service running, and it makes no sense to buy this device.
Summary: We were given a 10" Pulse as a 2011 holiday gift. We loved it. But after five months it failed, and we've had 3 months of wrangling with the company Kodak outsourced support to. Most recently, they told us that they couldn't fix it, and couldn't replace it because there were no more replacement units in their stock, or expected. After another several weeks and three rounds of paperwork, they are now in the process of refunding the purchase price to our daughter.
Summary: I bought one of these for my mom for mother's day. I'm on my way now to return it. Unlike most WiFi devices, this frame can't connect to the Kodak server unless it's in the same room as my router. Worse yet, the WiFi functionality is completely dependent on Kodak's server. So, if their server is misbehaving, like today or they simply decide to take it offline, then the WiFi functionality is useless.
This photo frame works brilliant until the point that the wifi fails, just over a year from purchase.

Summary: This photo frame works brilliant until the point that the wifi fails, just over a year from purchase. This has happened on two photo frames that I own. a bit flawed for something that just sits on a book shelf or side board.
